Gulf Shores Condo Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms,3 full bath,4 Queen size Beds, sleeps 8, 4 TVs, wireless internet

The Penthouse is the largest unit in the complex and located on the 7th floor. The Whaler is a low density condo with only 27 units so there is no long wait for the elevator. We have a deep large beach area so you do not feel crowed while on the beach. Our pool is outside with a depth of 3ft. to 8 ft.

We have a great location, only three red lights from the intersection of Highway 59 and Beach Blvd. the center of Gulf Shores. The Whaler is within walking distance to the Gulf State Park Beach and fishing pier which is located to the east along the beach. If you walk west along the beach you can reach the entertainment, restaurants and shopping area.

Whaler Beach Front Penthouse with twin balconys
average rating of 4.5 based on 4 reviews

Nicely decorated

  • 4 of 5

The kitchen was well stocked with everything you would need. The only complaint would be that there is no bathroom down by the pool, so you would have to go all the way upstairs to your condo.

  • 4 of 5

We danced on the beach,chased sand-crabs in the moonlight,played in the pool,slept-in on rainy days,enjoyed several savory meals,and totally relaxed in this roomy and well kept condo.

Thank you for sharing your little piece of Heaven with our family.

Very much enjoyed the Whaler

  • 5 of 5

AC and ice box both worked very well. Spacious for 7 adults. Master bed and bath awesome. Other baths full but a bit small. Easy walking distance to Sea N Suds, Pink Pony, Hooters. No issues with elevator, virtually no wait time for it. By the way-Direct ocean front property.

Fall Break at the Penthouse

  • 5 of 5

Eight members of our extended family stayed in the Penthouse from 10/9-10/16/2010 and had a great time. We ranged in age from 12 to 68 and all of us loved the place. The pictures you see do not do the place justice. Several items have been updated since the pictures were taken, such as TV's and bedspreads. The balconies are great - overlooking the pool and the beach and since there are two balconies there is plenty of room for everyone.

All three bedrooms are spacious and bright. They each have a big closet with plenty of drawer space also. Each has a flat screen TV, which makes for a total of 4 TV's (there is one in the living room also). The master bathroom has dual sinks and is very nice with a whirlpool tub. The hall bathroom is small, but has everything you need. The bedroom that has two queen beds has its own bathroom, which is a normal size with one sink.

Everything you should need on vacation is in the kitchen. Only thing we had to buy was groceries for breakfast, lunch and snacks. We ate out every night for dinner and had many great meals in the area. There is a nice washer and dryer located in the kitchen which is always nice to have. My kids were fascinated with the garbage disposal, compactor and the garbage chute near the elevator.

We had no problems with the elevator until the last day. We were never sure if it was broken or if they were only cleaning the elevator, but we had to haul our things to the car down the steps. Thank goodness for teenage boys with lots of energy.

Mr. White is a professional, nice man that will help you in any way he can. He even called me on the day after we returned home to make sure our stay was enjoyable and wanted to know if we had any concerns. The only item we wished there was more of in the condo was washcloths. With the 8 of us, we were always running out and having to wash a load of laundry.

As I have told many people, I could live in this Condo. The location of this condo is great, you can walk to the "T" easily as we did to the Shrimp Festival and Bon Jovi concert. We had no problem with the parking lot either. I love Gulf Shores and can't wait to come back.

The most well-known beach resort, Gulf Shores, boasts miles of sandy beaches, perfect for sunning, swimming, fishing, parasailing, bird watching or beachcombing.

Walk out of the Whaler to the water edge and turn left (East) and enjoy 2.5 miles of white sand beach, plus a State Park fishing pier. Turn right (west) and walk three blocks to the shopping, restaurants and entertainment area. Local golf courses are both scenic and challenging. Top-notch courses include Cotton Creek, Gulf Shores Golf Club and Kiva Dunes are within a short drive.

History buffs will find plenty to enjoy. Visit Antebellum houses such as the Bragg-Mitchell Mansion in Mobile, explore Civil War battlefield or tour historic Fort Morgan, which was completed in 1834 and saw service in four war.
